Longines Spirit Prestige Edition 42mm L3.8184.108.40.206
Founded in 1832, Longines has gracefully risen to take a royal seat in the world of watchmaking. Their winged hourglass logo registered in 1889 remains the oldest trademark known not to have lost its original form. Best known for their penchant for elegance, the Longines Spirit Prestige Edition 42mm L3.8220.127.116.11 is a mixture of innovative creativity and finesse.
There is no question that the year 2020 has been most memorable for Longines. To celebrate and honor their legendary pioneers, the company made a viral release of beautifully enameled editions, successfully adding these to their sports collections. However, most monumental was the Longines Spirit collections' release, precisely, the Longines Spirit Prestige Edition 42mm L3.818.104.22.168. This particular edition of the Longines Spirit collection was a perfect blend of the companies' opulent aviation heritage and indefectible pedigree.
Besides its prestige, Longines is proud to produce watches through time-honored and traditional methods to create aesthetically pleasing, highly durable, and comfortable timepieces. The dials, faces, and mechanics are lightweight, and the watches are thin to allow for comfort and versatility while performing any daily task, especially the Spirit Prestige with its historical roots in the aviation style. This is evident in the prestigious owners of Longines aviation watches in the professional field, including Amelia Earhart and Charles Lindbergh, the first person to fly solo across the Atlantic ocean.
The Outer Features
In addition to other unique properties, the Longines Spirit Prestige Edition 42mm L3.822.214.171.124 was made exceptionally a la mode due to its outlandish outer features. It has a 40mm-width stainless steel case with a solid case back. Its sapphire crystal is embellished with multiple layers of anti-reflective coverings, jealously protecting the hands and dial and making the watch more scratch-resistant.
The dial design in a matte black color with Arabic numerals and a Super-LumiNova lume aids to brand the watch an elegant luxury. It is given three luminous hands, which indicate the hours, minutes, central seconds, and the date, with the seconds hand beautifully overlaid with a red shine. It ticks at a frequency of 25,200vph with an impressive 64-hour power reserve. The ETA-based movement is girded with a silicon balance/hairspring and a certified chronometer, and at three, it displays the date.
To further give credit to the classiness of the Longines Spirit Prestige Edition 42mm L3.8126.96.36.199, its movement is a Mechanical Automatic, Calibre L888.4 high-value chronometer, which was Certified by the Controle Officiel Suisse des Chronometres (COSC) and this powers the automatic movement of the watch. It has 21 functional jewels used as a bearing for the wheel trains, escape lever, and impulse jewel.
The watch inherited a water-resistance of up to 100 meters/10 bars to guarantee its durability and service length. Its bezel is a round fluted shiny surface with a perfect finishing that blends into the lug. This modern decorative ring is masterfully designed to hold the watch glass in place and is shatter resistant.
Bearing witness to their centenary expertise in watchmaking, Longines ensures that in addition to the crown giving the case a watertight seal, the crown aids in adjusting the dates and time. When pulled two notches out, the watch stops, and to wind the watch, securing the crown in its original position and pushing it forward a minimum of twenty times gets the watch to work.
Quite exclusive to the Longines Spirit Prestige Edition 42mm L3.8188.8.131.52 model, this watch has three exchangeable 22mm straps. It is accompanied by a stainless steel bracelet, a leather strap, and a NATO-style leather strap, which adds more value to your purchase. It is designed to operate without any tool and has a quick-release mechanism that makes it possible for you to alter the existing strap and incorporate the strap of choice. You will find all of these assembled in the voguish box bearing the Longines Spirit brand winged hourglass logo.
Irrespective of your watch preferences, the Longines Spirit Prestige Edition 42mm L3.8184.108.40.206 is contrived to tug at your desires with its modernistic adaptation for usage both on air, land, and sea.
It is a perfect combination of the stunning element of Longines' previous models. Still, it also borrows some of the ultrapractical military-adjacent look and allure of the BigEye Chrono model. However, this is spiced up with a more detailed and contemporary execution. Amazingly, with all of these unique features and delightful qualities of the Longines Spirit Prestige Edition 42mm L3.8220.127.116.11, it is sold at a terrific price point.
